We engage in both Grant-Funded and Institution-Commissioned Action Research Projects. All projects are designed to improve specific student outcomes that will ultimately lead to college success. Topics focus on improving academic outcomes or college knowledge.
Building on the SLAM Project, M-PReP is a vertical alignment project from grade 9 through college grounded in the creation of a school-wide college math readiness plan. An eight-year longitudinal research project, M-PReP spans high schools, community colleges and CSUs in Southern and Central California.
Dual Enrollment Bridge (DE-Bridge), formerly known as SLAM, launched in 2013 as an intersegmental partnership with LAUSD and Cal State LA to create an innovative solution to the college math readiness dilemma. The initial three-year pilot was funded by a grant from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation.
